Peak Physical Therapy & Sports Performance staff (http://peaktherapy.com) recently volunteered with Cradles to Crayons, an organization that provides children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with essential items they need.
Founded in 2002, Cradles to Crayons takes new and gently used children’s good that are donated from families, individuals, corporations and product drives held by community groups. The organization depends on volunteers to come to their warehouse to inspect, sort and package all donations into “C2C KidPacks,” individualized packages of essential children’s items ordered for specific kids living in need. Social service agency partners place orders for the children they serve and distribute them directly to the children.
The volunteer team included Eric Edelman of Norwell, Jackie Defreitas DPT of Milton, Rachel Laufer DPT of Weymouth, Laura Barron DPT of Newton, Ryan Burke DPT of Quincy, Cheryl O’Malley PTA of Scituate, Leslie Cook of Marshfield, Rachel Healy of Marshfield, Shannon Delaney of Quincy, Jeanine Jernegan PT of Kingston, Meghan Harrington DPT of Quincy and Erica Hicks DPT, of Weymouth.
“Our team had a great day volunteering at Cradles to Crayons,” said Eric Edelman, PT, Founder of Peak Physical Therapy & Sports Performance. “The concept of connecting people who have with people who are in need is inspiring and we encourage people to support this important children’s charitable organization.”
